Central AL Forecast: Rainy Overnight, with a few T’storms.

July 04 2021 12:00 am

Watching for evening rain. Right now, an overcast sky blankets Alabama. Not much rain for us, yet. As we dive deeper into the evening hours rain will become more widespread. Light rain turns to showers, which will also include moments of downpours for some. I cannot rule an isolated rumble of thunder either.
At this time, the atmosphere will stabilize a bit and I do no anticipate any severe weather, but string winds and some bright lightning do accommodate these late springs storms. Just be advised.
Lows tonight will fall into the low 50s

Prepare for a soggy morning commute. The rain will clear out by late-morning and then we will be left with a cloudy sky. It will be unseasonably cool as we only get into the upper 60s.

The cool air sticks around for Thursday. We will have temperatures well below normal with morning temps in the low 50s, a few spots even dipping into the 40s, followed by afternoon highs only in the upper 60s.

An area of high pressure will build over the southeast U.S. on Friday. This will dry us out, lower the humidity and provide us with plenty of sunshine. It will be a little warmer, but still below normal, with high temperatures in the mid 70s.

Weekend Outlook: We will have some great weather this weekend! The area of high pressure will stay over us on Saturday. We will be sunny and warmer with high temperatures around 80°. Sunday will be warmer and become partly cloudy as it slowly becomes more humid aloft. High temperatures climb back into the lower to mid 80s – this will finally be above normal.

That’s all for now!  Be sure to follow the CBS 42 Storm Team on:
